ACC and its FInancial Services Committee are pleased to announce an ACC-members only regulator meeting with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Borne from the 2010 Dodd-Frank law, the CFPB is charged with implementing and enforcing consumer financial law. With almost two years under its belt, a growing staff of 1200, and a reputation for issuing significant complex regulations timely, the agency has also been embroiled in some difficult questions regarding ACC’s core advocacy issues: confidentiality and attorney-client privilege.
Join us in Washington, DC, on Thursday, July 18, 2013, from 10 am to 3 pm to discuss and get clarification on the hot-button issues. The day will begin with a preparatory and networking luncheon, followed by an intimate two-hour session with CFPB officials at their offices. Agenda topics include:
1. Attorney Client Privilege and the CFPB guidance that seemingly limits the privilege for in-house counsel at regulated financial institutions;
2. CFPB Guidance vs. Formal Rulemaking (Ex.- CFPB Bulletin 2012-03 re: Vendor Management and Oversight);
3. CFPB Exams including issues surrounding presence of enforcement counsel as members of Exams;
4. CFPB Investigations and data collection requests to financial institutions; and
5. Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Issues, including FOIA.
Space is limited and filling quickly. Please reserve your seat now! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
